Join Ex Cathedra for the launch of their 50th anniversary celebrations, and an exciting series of commissions that will renew our understanding of the Baroque repertoire. Ex Cathedra start with the theme of “beginnings & endings”, with a world première from their composer-in-residence Alec Roth, and with two witty and sublime cantatas by Bach.
Pre-concert talk, 6.15pm: Alec and Jeffrey introduce the programme with live examples.
Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, The Bramall
